"We held a meeting with representatives and Karni Sena and other Rajput groups in which we assured them that the movie will not be released in any theatre in the city", a cinema hall owner told The Hindu.
Security beefed up ahead of the screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film "Padmavat" in Ahmedabad on Jan 21, 2018.
The CJI told Mr Sharma "The court has to function as a constitutional court and it has already on Thursday in its interim order said that states can't block a movie from screening".
A bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud observed that the film was cleared by the with a U/A certificate for an all-Indian screening keeping in mind the provisions of the Cinematograph Act.
Earlier on Friday, venting out anger against CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, Shri Rajput Karni Sena said he will 'not be allowed to enter Rajasthan'.
Just a day after Supreme Court lifted the ban on Padmaavat in four states, violence has erupted in Gujarat.
During the hearing, the CJI also observed, "the whole problem is when the exhibition of a film is stopped like this, my constitutional conscience shocks me".
Refusing to comment on the apex court order, he said, "We are considering (strategies in view of) the changed situation after the SC order". He himself does not know what movie he wishes to make.
He said that the Karni Sena has decided not to reply to the letter but would burn its copies as a protest. "I feel obliged as Rajasthan and Gujarat film distributors have assured us that the film will not be released".
He claimed that historians who were shown the film by the censor board were also of the opinion that the movie should not be released.
Meanwhile, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus has been plagued by controversies ever since its inception. "My plea wasn't to ban the movie or about the states banning it or any other issue pertaining to the film". They staged a sit-in protest near Rithola crossing on the Udaipur-Ahmedabad highway by blocking it for almost half- an-hour, police said.
